Forum: etree Subject: Batting Average: 0.0%

I've noticed that the last 5 Radiators shows to be uploaded all are showing batting averages of 0.0% when a search for "Radiators" is done, but the show details pages show an entirely different number.

For example: Radiators: April 11th, 2004
http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=17555
shows a 0.0% batting average but the show details page has it listed at 39%

Also, do FTP downloads register on the batting averages? It doesn't appear so...

I downloaded all 4 shows made availabe today, and yet (for example)
http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-details-db.php?id=17789
shows 10 directory views, but a batting average (on the details page) of only 3%.

Any idea what's happening?

-Thanks

But not if you search like this:

http://www.archive.org/audio/etree-searchresults.php?/audio/audio-searchresults.php?submit=browsePopular&limit=1000&start=0&sort=addeddate%20DESC&collection=etree&searchBand=1&search=Radiators

(also, please see my edit, above)

Ok, I've fixed the bug.

Batting averages are adjusted for small samples sizes, and you do not know how many visits and item has, so you should not be able to anticipate what it's real batting average is. The item could have a 3% batting average because 1000 people looked at the item and didn't download it.

No, FTP downloads do not register.

"Well this is deprecated and we'll stop using it soon, so it's temporary."

What is going to be changed/phased-out, batting averages or my particular method of search?

Thanks for your responses, Jonathan (and thanks for the fix)

I've editted my post since you quoted it - please check it again (I've fixed the bug).

I just mean that particular page that you looked at is going to be phased out and replaced by the standard search.php.

Will the new search pages be limited to only 50 results or will there be a way to pull up more?
